bookworm

I am a big bookworm and if a book takes my attention I can really read it within 24 hours of my possession. However, since I got Greg reading became a bit limited and this year decided to try and read at least 24 books in a year- that means a minimum of 2 books monthly!

I went on my favorite book site - goodreads.com and selected 24 titles at random from the best books ever and see what happens. So far I read 6 books of these and in the left hand side bar you can see which they are and find also my rating once you click at the title.

Normally I like reading adventure, crime & spiritual books but decided not see what the books I chose are about and will simply discover them as I read.

Do you love reading? Do you have a genre?

so glad you stopped by! I love the feel of your blog, so peaceful...ahh...

I love reading. I sadly don't make much time for it anymore, but that needs to change. Crime/thrillers and spiritual books top my list as well, as well as historical fiction!

I looooove reading - so many different types depending on the mood or season that I'm in. I have to be 'ready' to start a new one though because when I start I just plow through and can't put it down!

Would love to see the titles on your goal list - what a great idea!

I love to read... I probably get through 10-12 books a week when I'm on a streak... I love suspense, women's fiction and romance... but will read just about anything :) Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier :)e

I do love reading and used to read soo soo much...Like Lora, I love crime/thrillers and historical fiction. These days I mostly read on the internet and it's a lot of parenting and medical stuff.
